There are a couple more bugs we'd like to fix for the 0.9 release but want to get as much feedback on the app in general before we go out. Please download this build and test with it and report any show stopping bugs that you find. We are still looking to do a 0.9 final sometime Monday." Builds can be found on the FTP site.

Windows: FF0.9 RC can import FF0.8 profile only if FF was default browser before FF0.9 RC is run for the first time. This means that you can't uninstall FF0.8 before installing FF0.9 RC because uninstall will reset default browser to IE (it doesn't even matters if FF0.8 was not a default browser, but that's separate issue). To work around wrong data imported into your new profile: - Install FF0.9 RC and run - Make FF0.9 RC default browser - Close FF0.9 RC - Delete new profile under /mozilla/firefox (make a backup copy if you wish) - Start FF0.9. It'll import data from your old FF0.8 profile. Old data is preserved under /phoenix folder.
